Kindred Rehabilitation Hospital in Arlington will lay off 92 employees and close its doors at the end of the year.
All positions will be eliminated at the facility located at 2601 W. Randol Mill Road, according to a letter sent to the Texas Workforce Commission last week.
Operations at the rehabilitation hospital will be consolidated with the Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Arlington, a facility that is a joint venture with Arlington-based Texas Health Resources and Dallas-based Methodist Health System.
“We will try our best to transition employees to our South Arlington campus, or other opportunities within the Kindred organization, as available,” said Russ Bailey, vice president of operations for Kindred, in a letter sent to the Texas Workforce Commission.
Louisville, Kentucky-based Kindred Healthcare Inc. announced Nov. 7 it plans to exit the skilled-nursing care facility business and focus on “growth opportunities in our home health, hospice, community care and [inpatient rehabilitation facilities] IRF businesses,” according to a company news release.
Texas Health Resources and Methodist Health System, in partnership with Nashville, Tenn.-based Centerre Healthcare, built the 40-bed freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospital at 900 W. Arbrook near Matlock Rd. and Interstate 20 in Arlington. It opened in mid-2015. Earl Swensson Associates, Inc. was the architectural and design firm on the project, and TS Bryne was the general contractor.
Texas Rehabilitation Hospital employs about 150.
